The Story of a Getaway!

Since we were almost burnt out from work, the heat.. and life.. we decided to have a little trip to the outskirts of UAE..

So I got my stuff ready for a much needed getaway!

Where the beach was clear..

The tanning great..

And the ambiance romantic..

Complimented by a full moon too! (btw i am very proud of this shot, although its 2 shots put together.. but still Both were taken by me XD) lol

But not for long! (eclipse captured poorly, but delightfully!)

And like all the good things in life.. it had to come to an end..
But we certainly felt as fresh as dawn walking out of there!

- to memorable getaways and refreshing starts! xx

hmmmmmmmmm --- since you wont share the name of this spectacular getway I will specualte -- based on the rigid mountains and the crystal clear waters I presume its in kha9ab???

is it true that UAE nationals got one hell of a rate for the grand opening of Atlantis -- somewhere around 600 dirhams???

I myself settled for the 3600 dirhams rate but still no availability til mid october

PinkChampagne said...

Im so glad you took a breather and relaxed..the shots are fantabulous and the place looks great...I had no idea resorts up north are that blissful xx

Layla said...

Oh I Love Miramar <3 such a romantic place. Went there for a stroll Last Eid. It was paaaCkeddd. Glad you had a time offff & esp in Fujairah. Very peacefull.

f7ee7eely. who told you locals have lower prices ?? Cuz I think it's not correct. Plus 9a7 it will open this Eid, but only the hotel rooms, much of the attractions & dolphins experience won't be offered. So I'd rather wait for everything to be ready then hit Atlantis :D

Fastidious Babe said...

lono: lol yeah i forgot all about those :P

PC: me neither, but it was surprisingly serene :)

layla: oohh dolphins.. me likey! Can't wait till its all ready! x
